Karim Khan was my batchmate at Petaro. He was a prominent member of the College Band, and the main drummer. He was always visible from afar. It was quite amazing that when we met at our first reunion of the 1964 entry at Petaro in 2001, he was as good at drumming as ever.

After leaving Petaro, Karim completed his DAE diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Karachi Polytechnic in 1973.
